Final Fantasy VIII Cheats For PlayStation
Defeating Abadon easily
If you want to kill Abadon (Disk 3) with minimal fuss, use a phoenix down or elixer on it and it will die instantly. This works with other undead enemies and bosses as well.

Get Unlimited Free Potions
You can get free Potions in Timber. Get Rinoa or Quistis in the party, then go to the bridge where you saw the guards. Keep returning until a man appears. Talk to him, then talk to him a second time to receive a Potion. Leave the screen and return until he appears again and repeat. This is good for getting gil, or just to store up for a battle.

To do this you must have the Recovery-Med RF ability and 100,000 Gil to start with. First you buy 100 tents. You then RF it into 25 Mega-Potions and sell them. You will gain your 100,000 Gil investment and an extra 25,000 Gil. This can be enhaced using Tonberry's Haggle abillity

Easy escape from battle
First off, you must have the ATB set to 'Wait'. During battle, access a menue window (Magic/Draw/Item/GF, etc) then hold down the run command (L2 & R2). The game disables enemies from attacking you since you're in 'Wait' mode, but continues to allow you to escape. This is a guaranteed escape from any escapable battle without taking damage while attempting to run.

SeeD Test answers
Surprised no one posted this yet, anyway here's the answers to all the SeeD tests (passing with 100% increases your rank and thus gives you more gil per paycheck) However, your rank can still go up or down based upon your actions. You can only take tests up to Squall's current level. (Obviously this isn't a problem after Level 30)

Start at FF8 Demo Save Point.
Download the FF8 demo from the internet. You automatically jump ahead (its a demo). Play it for a little until you beat it. (Or get to a point where you havn't got that far in the full version). Once you've gotten as far as you needed and save, move then contents of the folder 'Save' (typically under program files > FF8) to your current full version of FF8's 'Save' folder. Open the full version and you should see the demo save file in the full version. You can now play from your demo file and continue freely.
